* ``c.action`` and ``c.controller`` variables should be avoided.
Refer to either ``request.endpoint`` (generally it will be string in format
``BLUEPRINT_NAME.VIEW_NAME``, where blueprint is an alternative of
controller and view is an alternative of action) or ``request.url_rule``
(which is object with additional information about current rule).
``ckan.plugins.toolkit.get_endpoint`` can be used instead. This function
returns tuple of two items(depending on request handler):
1. Flask blueprint name / Pylons controller name
2. Flask view name / Pylons action name
In some cases, Flask blueprints have names that are differs from their
Pylons equivalents. For example, 'package' controller is divided between
'dataset' and 'resource' blueprints. For such cases you may need to perform
additional check of returned value:
>>> if toolkit.get_endpoint()[0] in ['dataset', 'package']:
>>> do_something()
In this code snippet, will be called if current request is handled via Flask's
dataset blueprint in CKAN>=2.9, and, in the same time, it's still working for
Pylons package controller in CKAN<2.9
